Gyrfalcon: Alphax: Gyrfalcon: And the Supreme Court has never passed legislation that suppresses free speech in any way.

Wait, what? (Citzens United)

Citizens United was approved by the Court on the argument that striking down the law could be used to suppress voting endorsement from ANY business--not just big corporations but mom&pop companies or even incorporated individuals (like doctors & lawyers). It was framed as a Free Speech issue not a campaign contribution issue; and the idea that restricting the endorsement from an individual who happened to be incorporated would have a chilling effect on free speech.

The Court upheld Citizens United on that basis, and possibly rightly so.


Perhaps I need more coffee, but that all looks like a word salad worthy of Sarah Palin. I can't begin to find a point to it.

And the problem with that was.... what?
I don't care how small the mom and pop store is, they can keep their campaign signs at home in their yard. Much better than to open the can of worms that Citizens United has been.
